Portugal - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Sitting in the shorelines of the south western coast of Europe, Portugal is a small country with a wide variety of things to offer you. Known for its splendor and serenity, it is pleasant all throughout the year with soft springs, mild winters and the warm summers getting softened by the sea breeze. Your trip to Portugal will be filled with delicious sea food, good wine, music and fluently English speaking and friendly locals will make your stay easier, more pleasant and fun. 

Lisbon Oceanarium with over 8000 sea creatures, the sacred Jerónimos Monastery, Castle of Sao Jorge with its magical silhouette, white sands of Falesia Beach and world famous Lello Bookstore are few of the most loved destinations in Portugal among tourists. Lush greenery, vineyards, port wine, vintage architecture are other amazing things which can be easily found in Portugal. 

Tour Highlights

  • Stare in awe at the intricate interior of the Church of São Francisco in Porto
  • Surf some of the best waves in Europe at Portugal’s seaside
  • Take a ride on Lisbon’s famous yellow Tram 28
  • Find magic at Livraria Lello, a bookstore said to have inspired J K Rowling’s Hogwarts
  • Explore the grandeur of Quinta de Regaleira in Sintra
  • Take in the view from the colourful grounds of Pena Palace

Travel Tips

  • When eating in a Portuguese restaurant, you will likely be offered bread and accompaniments like cheese and olives when you first sit down. This is not free, so politely decline if not interested.
  • Carry cash with you in Portugal. Some smaller restaurants (where you find the best food) may only accept cash or may charge fees for credit card use.
  • Portugal has its own genre of music: fado. These dramatic songs of longing are often performed in clubs, restaurants and chapels around the country, particularly in Lisbon.
  • July and August can be unbearably hot in Portugal. For plenty of sunshine but tolerable heat, schedule your holiday to Portugal during May, June or September.
  • Like in many European countries, the Portuguese enjoy long dinners and tend to eat quite late, often between the hours of 8pm and 10pm.

Portugal has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Portugal before planning your tour. And if you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in the country, do check out our Portugal Travel Guide for more information.

“Guide warm welcoming and attentive. Could have been more informative of sights. Great sights to see would recommend. Gives a good insight of Lisbon surrounds. Suggest if 4 in car should not use the vehicle provided as rear sest only suitable for 2 . Very uncomfortable for three prople”

“Ricardo was amazing...we only had one day in Lisbon due to travel issues and he picked us up at 6am, took us to Fatima and then through Lisbon for the day. He was the perfect balance of historical expert, story teller and he clearly loves his country. We would definitely use this company again when we come back to this beautiful country.”
Mountains to the sea, Potugal. Reviewed Tour: Self-Guided Cycling in Portugal: Mountains to the Sea
5 - Excellent
“From Castro Laboreiro to Porto. 6 days of cycling with stop overs at some wonderful Portuguese villages and towns, sampling the local cuisine and wines along the way. The scenery varied from picturesque mountains to coastal plains with cycle paths and rustic roads (cobbled surfaces so take padded shorts or saddle gel for maximum comfort).
The hire bikes were excellent, Specialised Rockhopper 29s and all were fairly new.
The transfers and baggage taxiing from hotel to hotel were faultless.
One of the best cycling holidays we have had.”
A Bumpy Ride Reviewed Tour: Self-Guided Cycling in Portugal: Mountains to the Sea
3 - Average
“This trip was obviously intended to give a range of scenery and experience. In practice, the descent from mountains to sea was rapid and we spent most of our time on cobbled roads and tracks through villages and vineyards. The hotels were varied, comfortable and interesting. It would have been of considerable help to have known which did not provide evening meals. A simple added note in the destination hotels section of the booklet would have warned us to eat, or collect food on the way and saved us some late night cycling in search of an evening meal.
The kit provided was comprehensive and good quality except for the GPS of which more later.
However, although mentioned in the trip notes, there were no maps provided and no first aid kit.
We had considerable problems with navigation. This caused our days to be considerably longer than we expected and left little, if any time, for sight-seeing. We had bought maps before we went but found them little use because we did not know the route. It was a mystery tour.
The GPS was not of sufficiently good quality to give a clear display. We are older people and perhaps our vision is not as acute as that of a younger person, but we are used to GPS and use it frequently. At every junction, and there were many, we had to stop and select our route by trial and error. All too often, we were in error and had considerable distances to retrace. Only one GPS was provided! and this is a point I made before we set off; that we should both have had one. I enjoy the navigation as much as my husband and felt considerably frustrated with my role as 'follower' Two heads would definitely have been better than one. At the very least, the provision of a map would have eased our problems.
We had no directions on our GPS, to our last hotel in Porto. Fortunately I had taken co-ordinates for the hotels from Google Earth before setting off and this, together with a street map acquired in another hotel in the town, got us to our destination.”

“Overall this is an amazing trip with many fantastic attributes, only spoiled by a lot of unseasonal rain prior to the trip (a bit during the trip) and a number of small points that could be improved in the organisation. However, these did not really detract from the overall trip experience,Th and my partner and I would not hesitate in recommending this cycling trip to others.”

Self-guided Cycling in Portugal - do it! Reviewed Tour: Self-Guided Cycling in Portugal: Mountains to the Sea
5 - Excellent
“This trip was just incredible, beyond words! The scenery that we cycled through was so varied, from vineyards to mountainous regions to the wonderful sea, and even though some cycles were tougher than I thought, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The accommodations that we stayed in were lovely, especially the 17th century farmhouse - it was probably the most beautiful and characterful place I have ever stayed in before. You really get a sense of the 'real' Portugal on this trip, miles and miles (literally and figuratively) from the beach resorts of the Algarve.”
Fascinating region but expect a bumpy ride! Reviewed Tour: Self-Guided Cycling in Portugal: Mountains to the Sea
3 - Average
“Loads of stunning scenery in a region with fascinating history, and some really interesting hotel stops.
Although rated as easy, this is not a trip for people who aren't comfortable with cycling off-road. Many of the tracks are badly rutted and rocky, and you might find yourself having to do a fair bit of pushing. Even long sections of the tour that are classed as 'paved' are actually over large cobblestones - not a comfortable ride!
The local Portuguese partners Vinitur don't seem well-organised. Though they provide a mobile phone for emergencies (nice touch admittedly), that's not much use when they fail to respond on either their office number or their mobile number. Plus they somehow contrived to cancel one of our hotel reservations.”
A great way to see Portugal Reviewed Tour: Self-Guided Cycling in Portugal: Mountains to the Sea
5 - Excellent
“A truly fantastic trip passing through the Vinho Verde wine producing region. We started off in the mountains at 950m and ended in the colourful, historic and beautiful city of Porto at the end of our cycling holiday. The trip was a great way to see the rural life of Portugal and I would highly recommend this trip.”
